Had raced exclusively over 5f but he was strong through the line when making all over 6f at Hamilton (good to soft) the final time; has another career-high mark to deal with (up 5lb) but he likes these tracks with stiff finishes.

Arrives on a long losing run but signalled he's ready to go in again when a very good second of ten in 5f Ayr handicap 13 days ago; he took this contest in 2021 so merits serious consideration.

In good form last month, winning a 6f handicap at Wolverhampton and following up over C&D in fine style; only fourth at Southwell (6f) in his hat-trick bid, racing closer to the stands' rail than the three to beat him; should make another bold bid back at 5f.
